Lens Corrections - Oly vs Panny in Lightroom?
Apr 18, 2010


I will be buying a 20mm f1.7 shortly. I can get it alone or on the GF1. This puts the GF1 at a pretty nice discount. If I decide to not get the combo I'll probably buy the Oly E-PL1. (Just to get IS on that entertaining Vivitar 135mm f2.8 I picked up for $10 yesterday. Woo!) This got me wondering.

How are lens corrections handled in LR? Say I shoot my Panny 14-45 on the Oly: will I get all of the lens corrections (distortion and ca) I get if I shot it on my G1 or will I just get the corrections (just distortion, I think) that Oly would have done? Does LR even do lens corrections for Oly raw files?

I know what happens with in camera files. Just not sure about how LR handles this.

I suppose one could just run everything through ptlens or something...
